    Hong Kong is NOT Mainland China. It also is NOT in 1955 nor are its residents. It's one of the most modern cities anywhere

    Funny... Shanghai and Peking sure don't look 1955 to me... especially Shanghai (and i go there quite often on business), and certainly not Hong Kong.

    Uh, the government can build skyscapers in Shanghai and Beijing, that doesnt mean China is a land of two car families with suburban track homes color televisions, regular trips to the movies and road trips in their convertibles accross China 3 weeks in the summer.

    I mean, much like the post WWII prosperity that transformed America in the late 40s and 50s shaped America's middle class, CHINA is just now opening up to foreign movies and theme parks and their citizens are just now getting the disposable income to be able to support such a park.

    Or do you think theres some other reason 2 billion people cant support a Chinese owned park / movie / animation industry?

    Oh, and sure Hong Kong itself was British colony and the population there is more Westernized and democratic and open and well off. But HKDL is going to need to bring in guests from outside the city to be profitable. It has to draw from a good chunk of the surrounding provinces.

    Well... it's you who seem to hate me and call me names...so maybe you should be a little more respectful of TDLFAN. Or else, you won't get no TDR presents if we ever do meet in person (highly unlikely at this point in time)

    From today's NY Times story on the new park:

    <<"I've had curry before and I've had sushi before, but this was a hamburger that didn't taste like a hamburger that I knew," said Tom Fitzgerald, a senior creative executive at Imagineering. (He said it tasted like pork meat loaf.) "You don't want to say, 'Well, this is the way we make a hamburger in the States and so that's the way we're going make a hamburger here.' " Disney went with the proposed burger.

    The park has a topiary garden where Minnie and Mickey Mouse and other characters will pose for photographs with guests, a favorite pastime with international parkgoers. One of the most anticipated attractions is the Jungle River Cruise. Unlike other parks with a similar attraction, Disney has created Cambodian ruins for guests to float past, and an unruly pack of hippos. "Instead of the guns that scare off the hippos, we actually have our hippos in Hong Kong have bad breath and then they belch," said Mr. Fitzgerald.>>

    That quote comes from Tom Fitzgerald, senior park designer. Great to know that in addition to bad burgers, we can have belching hippos too -- and they are PROUD of this! Wanna bet the hippos smell just like Stitch's chili-dog breath?
